We made the trip to the lovely pitch at Ventnor in the bowl on the hill for a high scoring game of great rugby. With a total of thirteen tries and both side achieving bonus points, Ventnor’s first of the season, it was an entertaining afternoon.
It took both teams some while to get into their stride in this game but it was the visitors who started to take control after ten minutes when after an infringement at the ruck they slotted the first penalty to take an early lead.
On a bitterly cold afternoon the second leg of the season’s local derby between Ellingham and Ringwood and us took place. This time the result of the earlier encounter was reversed with us running out winners.
